Create a trifold board with information about what you’ve done, photos, write ups, exemplars of student work, and handouts if you’d like to give participants a snapshot of the resources you used.
Sessions can be facilitated by one or two educators and run for 60 minutes.
What should a Poster Session be about?
SPOC Tech - What has made your job as a SPOC easier? Topics we’re looking for include attendance systems, inventory apps, maintenance plans or anything you would recommend to a SPOC to help them make their school tech run better.
Classroom EdTech - What have you done with technology in your classroom that has engaged students in new ways? Have you taken a certification in Google, Microsoft, Apple, BrainPop, PBS, Common Sense etc? How did certification help streamline workflow, lessons incorporating content area curriculum with programming an app in Python, unique ways to use iPads in instruction, how you deal with student devices as a resource in class, or anything that a classroom educator can take to better their use of technology beyond projecting on an interactive screen.
Maker Ed - How have you used new or traditional technology to connect learning to the design process? Topics on project based learning, make-a-thons, community design challenges, creating Makerspaces in classrooms and libraries, or anything an educator can use to develop a creative approach to mastery.
This is an opportunity to share what you do with an audience of educators who are looking for ways to better their practice. It is also an opportunity for you to open the door to your classroom and reach a larger audience than your own school community without the stress of having to prepare a workshop. It is the next step in your career.
